Horizontal dropout fat frames

Do any horizontal dropout fat bike frames exist? Searching the internet and this board has been unsuccessful. Thanks!

Surly’s new ice cream truck and new and old pugsley have horizontal dropouts. Trek Farley and salsa mukluk have adjustable dropouts which may accomplish the same thing.

Yeah, Salsa dropouts are hard to beat. You can even get thru-axle versions! (with disc brakes and the rotating mass of a fat wheel/tire combo, thru-axles offer real benefits, IME)
